Notable South Australians; or, Colonists - Past and Present
Adelaide, Carey, Page & Co., Printers ('Published under the Author's own immediate Supervision'), 1885.
Octavo, viii, 288, [20, advertisements] pages plus 16 lithographs and a mounted albumen paper photograph (98 x 59 mm).
Gilt-decorated plum-coloured stippled cloth sunned on the spine, with the front cover lightly mottled and marked; extremities slightly rubbed, with the head of the spine very slightly snagged and the bottom corners a little bumped; a very good copy (internally fine).
The lithographs are a delightful frontispiece view of Glenelg in 1837 after John Michael Skipper and 15 full-page portraits. The photograph is of Loyau, facing the camera and looking a little to his right (with the photographers George and Walton credited on the negative). We have identified numerous variants in the plate content. Ferguson 11748 (recording only the frontispiece, with 14 pages of advertisements); Holden 71.
